NFC Chipped Business Cards: Innovative, The Bible’s Book Of Revelation Come To Life Or Just Plan Useless?
2012 has become the year that Bluetooth has taken somewhat of a back seat; while Near Field Compliant or (Communication / NFC) devices and doohickeys have been increasingly on the rise. Here at Lifestyles Defined, there has been somewhat of a love hate thing going on with NFC. Is it useful, or not, is it simply just another gimmick or could it be the the predate to the Biblical apocalypse? Although my colleague Ramon will give you the “gimmick” side of it, I happen to think that it will most likely do no less, but perhaps more than Bluetooth did when it was announced in 1998 and later released in 1999.
NFC compliancy allows for the use of Cellular / Mobile devices, Watches, Fuel wands (as in Mobile’s fuel wand originally released in 1999), and now with business cards. The tech is seemingly for the most part simple. The device has a chip installed into it that is programmed to either send or receive information. In many cases these chipped devices are now capable of doing both. Of course; nothing is without its controversy, and in this case; controversy of Biblical proportions! This type of tech was (if you have read the Bible) spoken of in the book of Revelation. It goes on to correlate the “mark of the beast” with the implantation of microchips into the back of your hand and or the forehead. It certainly doesn’t take a genius (no Apple pun intended) to know that NFC chips installed into business cards and mobile devices could be the predecessor to a tech that would no long require a host that could be easily misplaced. Something like the back of a human hand would make for a better carrier. However unlikely in our lifetime, this type of tech could be seen to many as the potential fall of mankind. It is also a strong belief to many that the horizon is not as far as it appears to be. I guess one could never know.
Companies like Moo.com and Hicel Tech have come out with their own versions of NFC business cards and happen to be very appealing from a corporate and business sense. Sure this will all find itself trickling down to the consumer, but I can’t say that the ominous Nay Sayers will be able put the breaks on NFC anytime soon. Still how soon is later if you are a Biblical fanatic trying to start a world wide panic? Hmmm!?! Check out that video below on NFC Business cards by Moo.com
